MOLLYPATHS ALLIED WITH SOCIOPATHS:
"To the Memory of Capt. Nathan Hale" by Eneas Munson, Sr. :
Hate of oppression’s arbitrary plan, The love of freedom, and the rights of man; A strong desire to save from slavery’s chain The future millions of the western main, And hand down safe, from men’s invention cleared, The sacred truths which all the just revered; For ends like these, I wish to draw my breath,’ He bravely cried, ‘or dare encounter death.’ And when a cruel wretch pronounced his doom, Replied, ‘Tis well, —for all is peace to come; The sacred cause for which I drew my sword Shall yet prevail, and peace shall be restored. I’ve served with zeal the land that gave me birth, Fulfilled my course, and done my work on earth; Have ever aimed to tread that shining road That leads a mortal to the blessed God. I die resigned, and quit life’s empty stage, For brighter worlds my every wish engage; And while my body slumbers in the dust, My soul shall join the assemblies of the just.
If we wish to sustain Western Civilization, we must surpass our vision-less mollypathism.
We must define and enforce defensible borders --- in geography, language, and culture.
We must not allow ourselves to be overrun by unassimilable faux-immigrants. Cultural Creep: Beyond a tipping point, illegal immigration by massing Hispanics will sink American culture and common language and turn our meanings upside down, turning indolence into merit, unfairness into fairness, and p.c. mind control into education.
We must not allow ourselves to be overrun by unassimilable faux-religion. Sharia Creep: Beyond a tipping point, seditious preaching by massing religious fascists will sink American ethos and turn our morality upside down, turning dictate into justice, rote regurgitation into wisdom, and mind enslavement into charity.
We must not allow ourselves to be overrun by unassimilable faux-equality. Socialist Creep: Beyond a tipping point, socialistic indoctrination by powerfully connected and wealthy pirates and henchmen bent on farming the proletariat will sink our Bill of Rights and turn American laws upside down, turning disloyalty into loyalty, regulated graft into free markets, and enforced equality into liberty.
Presently, liberals, libertarians, and bluebloods promote the irreversible empowering of all three forms of Creep --- Cultural, Sharia, and Socialistic. Those who will take the most fascistic advantage of such Creepism are Race-Bigots, Religion-Intolerants, and Economy-Dictators. The only defenders against such Creepism tend to be Extreme Moderates and Social Conservatives. But, allied against them are both the mollypaths and the fascists they enable.
If Extreme Moderates and Social Conservatives wish to make common cause to sustain Western freedom of thought and enterprise, we must surpass mollypathism. Simply put, mollypaths are not on the side of sustainable freedom of thought and enterprise. The path America is presently on, i.e., “reaching across the aisle” to mollypaths, cannot suffice.

"The refusal of Bush critics to acknowledge the historic and barbaric cruelty of President Bush's adversaries raises serious questions about their own moral commitments"
These people are mollycoddling dangerous psychopaths and sociopaths. There must be some genetic or cultural explanation for why we find ourselves so top heavy with mollycoddlers. Call them "MOLLYPATHS," because their efforts may as well be allied with the efforts of psychopaths and sociopaths.
When we get our next 9-11, we must not allow the country to go back to the mollycoddling mall. Rather, we must get in the faces of mollypaths and shame them as never before, as Neville Chamberlain was shamed.
Europe took an insane chance, disarming before Hitler. But Europe had America to re-arm it. America does not have a New-America to re-arm it. If we go down, we will have done it to ourselves. And the way we will have done it is by whimpering out to mollypaths. We need better insight into the mollypath mind, and soon!

We have more criminals for the same reason we have more terrorists: Liberals, Libertines, and Bluebloods mollycoddle and support them. They would rather a named killer or terrorist be paroled than that his unnamed future victims be protected. They would rather play an Inside Game than reform the Chicago Way. They would rather enable stupendous chasms in wealth and power than bring billionaire pirates to justice.
Support criminals, get rap crap, get more criminals. Support terrorists, get movies romanticizing Che, get more terrorists. Support unlimited power to purchase political influence, get Soros' "Open Society," reap the whirlwind.
When we are trying to defend society against sociopaths, this pattern of behavior becomes simply stupid. Libs, Libertines, and Bluebloods are "molly-paths." Its time to stop mollycoddling molly-paths. Get in their faces!
True Grit ---"What a maroon you are - we have suffered thru 8 years of a rogue administration who hAS lied us into war, caused countless deaths, betrayed the Constitution and Bill of Rights, not to mention betrayed a CIA officer, instituted torture as part of national policy...."
Have you served in the military? I don't get your "lied us into war." Please define lie (use your own definition) and then explain how Bush lied us into war.
Re --- "caused countless deaths": Have you considered how many deaths Bush has likely saved, in respect of our not having been attacked since 9-11?
Re --- "betrayed the Constitution": I may give this one to you, but only in the sense that Bush, and every other President for the past 40 years (especially Dems!) has failed to enforce our borders and to lead us to a sane energy policy. Unlike what I suspect of Dems, I am not aware of Bush's having sold out military secrets.
Re --- "betrayed a CIA officer": Surely you do not mean Valerie Plame, the desk jockey with the self-inflated husband who was "outed" by Armitage (Dem). Come on, man!
Re: "instituted torture": Are you quite sure no Dem ever authorized waterboarding? Are you quite sure Obama will not authorize it, should stakes become high enough? Are you quite sure your giving aid and comfort to our enemy is not inciting them to engage in real torture, Daniel Pearl style? Did you read what the goons of Mumbai did? Do you not see any connection in their real torture and your undermining of American efforts?
If "torture" concerns your "true grittiness" so much, what are you doing to bat it down where it is most heinous? And why are you helping to encourage our enemies to engage in it? Given your unsupported laundry list, I recommend you get treatment for BDS, asap. Good luck with that.
True Grit, Were you to constrict Franklin to his time and place, you may be right. But Federalists among the Founders supported the Alien and Sedition Act. Nor are Dems immune from modifying ideals to fit facts on the ground: FDR encamped many Japanese citizens.
Regardless, none of our leaders of yore lived in a time of WMD mixed with suicide-bombing, mind-dead creed-fascists. The plain fact is, psychopaths and their twisted true believers are unlikely candidates for rehabilitation, yet often have superior skills for positioning themselves to inflict maximum pain and destruction. Psychopaths' skills are exploding, while mollypaths sing pollyanna slogans from the past.
Mollypaths may as well be cheerleaders for psychopaths. (Give me a "b". Give me a "u".... What's that spell? Bush Is Evil. Gooooo .... Mollypaths!)
Frankin, perhaps the smartest man of his age, is not for us to shrink to tying himself to a never-changing position, notwithstanding great changes in facts on the ground.
Let's see what your Obama guy does. If he fails to protect the country, he is toast.
Better slogans for a new age (?): Freedom within law, liberty with order, autonomy subject to defensible borders! Don't be a mollypath --- you're just empowering psychopaths, )
There must be some sort of "brain freezing virus" or susceptibility to "mommy-overindulgence" to which Leftists minds are more exposed than most. Otherwise, what could possibly explain the hysterical handwringing by Leftists: about Israeli settlers vs. Palestinian bomb throwers; or about waterboarding of captured sources of high level enemy information, while at the same time losing no sleep whatsoever about abortions gone wild? What could explain Leftists' tremulous angst about the incarceration of captured enemy combatants vs. oblivious unconcern for safety of persons in whose neighborhoods such enemies would otherwise be released? What could explain Leftists' fascination with appearance, yet ignorance of reality?
Can we please just open up a big free room for vice and video games, to entice and divert all Pinnochio-Leftists so they can be led to devote themselves entirely to make-believe lands they know best?
Manning ("I favor the things Larrey Anderson identifies as religious rituals (higher fuel efficiency, pollution controls, etc.). I think limiting the freedom of some people to pollute is fair if it causes a cleaner environment for everyone. Moderation, of course, is important. Now, am I a religious fanatic?"):
Well, one man's religious fanaticism is another man's respect for God and Country.
I think Government should lead when it can lead responsibly. After all, who else can provide leadership when we otherwise would sink to "the tragedy of the commons"? Problem: Our Government has morphed to become less like a Responsible Adult than a Sociopathic or Narcissistic Child, launched from simple religious fealty, on to psychogenic addiction, on to towards full blown lunacy.
Ideally, Government could help us not just avoid calamities, but could also gently steer or inspire us to greater appreciation of common values, such as: clear skies, more varied environment, less monopolization of environment by human beings, more energy independence from sociopathic countries, more protection from special interest influence over legislators, and more protection for Constitutional integrity and national borders.
Responsible Government could gently steer us with better tax policies, such as in respect of: fuel taxes, sales taxes, and progressive taxes on political contributions.
The problem is, our Culture has allowed our Government to become so removed and so embedded with corruption that it cannot be trusted. Our Government, in many respects, is NOT RESPONSIBLE! Rather, Beltway Government is in bed with Big-Time Ponzi and Market-Cornering Opportunists. To turn over great gobs of money to such people is to invite electoral masochism on a grand scale.
What parent should trust a child who behaved as our Government, which has: Failed to respect or protect our borders, enriched our enemies, enabled Ponzi schemes for friends, and undermined common decency?
Our "child" (Government) needs tough love and intervention. We simply can no longer trust its fear mongering or feed its habits and fellow addicts. We need "The Dog Whisperer," to help show us how to put this Government on a much shorter leash.
Problem: The addicts are gone wild, off their leashes, and the adults will not regain control until the antics of the addicts brings them down and they can be re-fitted with appropriate standards of decency or shorter leashes (i.e., Atlas Shrugs).
Meantime, don't mollycoddle or unduly feed the monster! To do so is not especially supported by science, but only in faith, which, by now, is to approach religious lunacy.
We won't reclaim our "child" until we get him off his addictions.
Simply put: Do not believe the addict's schemes.
Equal Is As Equal Does --- http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/12/parties_of_corruption_ii.html :
Well, look to root causes, for crying out loud! Dems would not be so corrupt if Repubs were not so mean! Repubs make such a thing about working hard, looking good, and being a success. But, you know whut? Not everyone is born with energy, looks, or talent. So, why should Dems be penalized just because of accidents of birth? To compete, fairness requires that Dems not be held to the same standards. Dems should be entitled to lie, cheat, and steal, sort of as a class form of affirmative action, or reparations. Aren't Dems as good as Repubs? Shouldn't they have as much? How else they gonna get it? Criticizing Dems for being corrupt is like making fun of old people for being wrinkled. All people are equally entitled! You must be stupid! Haven't you ever read Marcuse?
